It depends on what you do. What do you do?

Or do you do administrative tasks? If so, then I would go to a temp agency. You can get a good idea of what you can get, jobwise, if you do that.

I think what cmaxmor is trying to say is that everyone here can do a better job of answering your questions if you can be more specific as to what you are qualified for, what do you have experience doing. "Manufacturing" is very vague, did you manufacture computer chips, tighten lugnuts on cars or just pack things in boxes, or did you work in the office of a manufacturing business processing invoices? It makes a huge difference. People here will try to help you if you can be more specific.

Best wishes, R

You are/were a line worker?

Not many cars built in Austin. What are your skills? Assembly? Welding? There is a fair amount of semiconductor and semi equipment, and semi supplier manufacturing in Austin, those employers many want specific experience in the chip industry, otherwise, there is Toyota in San Antonio and a few suppliers to them in the general Centex area. GM manufactures in Dallas.
